Customer Rating
Johnnie Walker Red Label was launched in its current form by brothers George and Alexander Walker in 1909, though it had existed as Walker's Special Old Highland Red Label for some years previously. Alexander blended a type of whisky which is more suited to mixing with soda than the heavier, more old-fashioned whiskies, and named it after his grandfather, who had started the family business in 1820. Today it is the world's most popular whisky and is sold in more than 200 markets world-wide.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sour apple, toffee and light spice. Hints of vanilla sponge and caraway.

    Palate: Soft and gentle, with sweet grain, sour apple, vanilla cream and white pepper. Caramel and toffee sweetness develops.

    Finish: Short and sweet, with growing apple skin tannin and a touch of fruit.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Hints of fresh apple, pear and the spark of zest from the elegant Speyside malts. 

    Palate: Fruity sweetness, cinnamon and pepper crackling on the centre of your tongue.

    Finish: A sophisticated, smoky finish - the signature of all Johnnie Walker blends.

    Sampled it with “Bitter Lemon” at Cape Coral Arts Festival. It was delicious But I have been to a liquor store and a grocery store and cannot find that “bitter lemon” they never heard of it. Where can I find it?

    Great for mixing with Pepsi Max or Coke Zero. Not bad for shots either. I absolutely love this whiskey.

    A fine and consistent blend. You can't go wrong with Red Label.

    I’ve never got the whole single malt scene. My taste has always been more towards blended. You can regularly pick this up for very little, at which point, I’d say it’s unbeatable. I drink cheaper blends by freezing an inch of water in my favourite tumbler then pouring on. You need the lower temperature for this blend imo. I know it’s not the best dram ever made but I drink a bottle of this a week in average and while I love to try all sorts I always end up coming back to Red Label. Cheers.

    I just love smokey tasting whiskies and this one has it for me. I always drink scotch with tonic and Red Label is perfect with tonic in my opinion. Despite the mix the peaty smokiness dominates. My whisky of choice.

    it's not the best whisky ever ,but for a smokey woody scotch at this price it's really good.

    Just plain delicious. I've tried a lot of scotches, and I'll probably try a lot more. But this may be my regular stuff. I get a bit of pepper along with the caramel on the nose, and then the full caramel on the palate. I prefer it to some of my more expensive scotches. Did I mention it tastes good?

    I've drank a lot of scotches and I must say it has a kick, is that a smoky oaky flavor? For the price I would say the Red is a full bodied well rounded scotch blend. And despite people saying it's good as a mixture, Winston drank it with soda water I believe, but all scotch can be drank with a dollop of fresh water, it's a preference, but I, sure some people just like a straight forward Walkers Special Old Highland Red...!

    Red label is a decent quality low end whiskey, it's quite harsh, best with mixers or in cocktails but a must for any collection

    Red label is not a whisky for starters, people who thought single malt is superior than blended or people who alway compare it with other whiskies in the same series, like black or green or blue. I love it since it represents such a distinct flavour of what a properly blended whisky is: well-balanced, smoky, sweet and vibrant. In this low-price range, it's a good choice for a few of us. Tbh I get bored with all these complex things about single malt, I just want a simple dram that satisfies.

    This has a motor-oil quality to it, and I mean that in a good way

    Similar, in my opinion, to Famous Grouse original except this has a finish/aftertaste like bacon. Maybe I'm too much of an amateur to write reviews, but that's my two cents worth. I like bacon, but not in my scotch. To give you an idea of what my tastes are, my favorite blend is Great King Street Artist's Blend, and my go to single malt is Glen Fiddich 12.

    Well - I agree with many here that Red Label is the best of the cheaper whiskeys - I ordered a bottle of 60's Red Label - and I kid you not this was truly out of this world - comparable to even Blue Label - it must have matured in the bottle - yes I know what you are thinking......Some have said Black Label is streets ahead of Red and so it is -fabulously good for the money and comparable with many many luxury offerings. Also I hear a few voices for ' once you try Double Black you'll never go back' - I presume you mean double the hangover......

    Tried Red Label after Double Black ... never ever bought Red Label again. Pay more and get something better!

    Not thrilled with the smoky finish. Otherwise, a classic blend. Stands up to water quite well. I like my Scotch with a lot of water, not to cut the taste but because water is good for us.
